NEW YORK – The Jane Hartsook Gallery is pleased to present work by our 2023 artists in residence: Jenny Day, Hongmi Kim Hoog, Grant Landreth, Sara Nishikawa, and Rebecca Potts. Greenwich House Pottery’s Artist Residency Program fosters artistic growth by providing makers with time, space, materials, and a creative community, to explore and generate new bodies of work in ceramics in vibrant New York City.

Jenny Day is a New Mexico-based painter who blends actual landscapes with imagery from her memory and from social media to create fantastical scenes that focus on small- and large-scale personal or environmental disasters. During her residency, Day continued to transform the two-dimensional world of her paintings into the realm of three dimensions, creating work for a memento-mori inspired dinner party installation.

Hongmi Kim Hoog is a New Jersey-based artist who creates vessel forms by layering earthenware, stoneware, and porcelain to create unique visual patterns. For Kim Hoog, the juxtaposition of different clay bodies emphasizes the natural beauty of each material and is a metaphor for the benefits of diversity. During her residency, Kim Hoog continued her layered-clay vessel series.

Grant Landreth is a New York City-based artist who uses cast-off items found on NYC streets—cardboard, trash bags, fashion, and furniture—to create new patterns and forms using traditional sewing, weaving, and ceramics techniques. During their residency, Landreth created classic ceramic forms using digitally designed multipart molds made from found cardboard and experimented with weaving techniques and nichrome wire.

Sara Nishikawa is a Michigan-based artist whose work focuses on domestic objects, the intersection between designed tools and food, and on the relationship objects have with narrative. What does it mean to live in a world that not only has melon ballers, but also ice cube trays designed to make ice the perfect size for a specific water bottle? During her residency, Nishikawa created hyper-specific dishes for her favorite foods that, together, created a self-portrait of the artist.

Rebecca Potts is a New York-based multidisciplinary artist who mines materials to create sculptures that find connections between seemingly opposed concepts, like sculpture and painting or figuration and abstraction. Potts is particularly inspired by mythology, mysticism, and alchemy. During her GHP residency, Potts considered the Greek myth of Medusa and her transformation from dangerous monster in life to tool of divine protection in death.
